Watch Dogs releasing for Xbox 360 and PS3? This screenshot suggests otherwise

Ubisoft has released a new screenshot for their recently announced open-world action game Watch Dogs and it looks stunning, to say the least.

Ubisoft may be playing coy with what platforms Watch Dogs will be released for, having refrained from initially announced platforms for the new IP. Ubisoft's noncommittal to platform, other than PC, initially led to speculation that Watch Dogs could be released on next-gen consoles; I wouldn't be surprised if this screenshot leads to more of those rumors, despite the game's producer since confirming it will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3. If Watch Dogs is, in fact, launching on this generation then I guess it goes to show that maybe we do have some years left in these systems.

Still, it does look like something of next-gen nature. If this is a taste of things to come, then it looks like a bright future for gaming.

Not only does Watch Dogs look visibly amazing, but the gameplay looked incredible as well. Watch Dogs, at E3, showed off an open-world action-adventure that "blends cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated game design into a realistic and living open world where players must use any means at their disposal to take down a corrupt system." Armed with technology and the ability to hack into any connected electronic system, gameplay will focus on the concept that all people can be identified and tracked based on their electronic interactions. Players must use this ability to their advantage as they hunt down valuable targets.

So what do you think, next-gen or not?
